The Scottish Government Minister for local government, housing and planning, Kevin Stewart visited the former Chapelpark School, now transformed into modern council houses, and now known as Academy Court.

Housing spokesperson Cllr Craig Fotheringham said:

I am delighted to host this visit to the new Academy Court so that the Minister can see the transformation first-hand. There has been a fantastic response to these new homes, with over 700 people coming along to the Open Day in July. These are modern homes with a number of innovative and exciting technologies, which, coupled with the history of the buildings, have made these homes attractive to our tenants. I’m positive that this enthusiasm will be retained and future generations will also be proud to call Academy Court ‘home’.
